I'm a beginner/intermediate sheet reader and struggling a bit with a current piano piece ("He sleeps" from Pretty Woman). The only arrangement I could find uses a notation which makes it hard to separate the voices and bring them in sync with the time signature. I'm currently trying to rearrange the score in an easier way for myself.
and things are just getting worse from there with:
(all in 4/4)
Is this how multiple voices are usually written? I'm having a hard time figuring out which keys to press when and with what hand and always need to refer to videos so I can watch other people playing - which takes ages.
Can't this be written in an easier, more readable way like I tried in example 1 or am I missing something? I'm thinking about rewriting the entire score, but as I never did that before, it might not be the best approach (or even lead to more errors).
